I have just returned home from my 2nd year at V Festival and staying at Harwood House. Ian and Helen make you feel most welcome and they are so accomodating if you need anything. Such fabulous personal service! Great accomodation, breakfast and late evening pick up service from V Festival. See you next year Ian and Helen for V Festival!

I stayed here this weekend on the recommendation of a friend whilst we went to the V festival and what a super experience. Ian and Helen are fabulous hosts where nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The hotel was full of festival goers and it had a great atmosphere with Ian and Helen ferrying us to and from the...

The pictures of the hotel make you think you are staying in an Elizabethan mansion, you're not. However the hotel is clean and adequate. The staff are amazing. Treat you like royalty tbh, just lovely. Just a nice place to have a cheap break. No frills but good value for money.

This place is ideal for any kind of visit but our purpose was due to flying out from Stansted airport. Stayed here twice now in 2 months. Once with my mum and 1 year old and the second time with my husband and 1 year old. They provided cot and bedding for my little one, parking facilities and airport transfers.... More

We stayed here to break the long journey from home to Stansted and the option of car parking. From the initial telephone enquiry to our departure, everything was perfect. On arrival we where greeted by Ian who explained the procedures and everything went like a well oiled machine. We have no hesitation in recommending Harwood House and will certainly be... More

I live in the Netherlands and met 3 Americans in England. We traveled from the south to Harwood house in Stansted. What a great experience. The rooms are very comfortable and pretty. The bathroom was more then just an en suite. The bed was very welcoming and delivered just that. Beds are heaven on earth! Slept like a baby. Breakfast... More

We stayed for one night before our flight the next morning and would have no quibbles about doing so again as the room was clean and tidy and everything in the en-suite worked. Harwood House comes in slightly cheaper than a night at an airport hotel, it is a touch further away but by arrangement the owner will drop you... More
